What is Our Task After the Election?

The votes are still being tallied in the 2020 elections, but Fr. James Martin has already offered a simple reminder about the task ahead:

What is our task? In many ways, it is same as before the election: to work for the dignity of all human life: the unborn, the migrant and refugee, the Black man and woman, the LGBTQ person, the Covid patient, the person without healthcare, the homeless, the unemployed, the abused woman, the inmate. It will change depending on who is elected, but it is essentially the same: proclaiming the Gospel and standing up for those on the margins, for those whom Jesus called “the least of our brothers and sisters.”
